Evaluating Lane-Keeping-Assistance System for Motorcycles by Using Rider-Control Model 2008-32-0056
This study seeks to design a lane-keeping controller for motorcycles and to evaluate it by simple computer simulation with a rider-control model. We applied the optimal control theory to the lane-keeping controller. The control effect is evaluated by using the rider-control model. By examining the computer simulation with the rider-in-the-loop system consisting of the motorcycle, the controller, and the rider-control model, good lane-following performance is achieved without interference between the control input and the rider's input. Additionally, the lane-following performance is improved by using a virtual-point regulator.
